If any broken person wants to rise from ashes, it has to be about structure, order and emotional intelligence.
The world of business rests on a pivotal point of balance, forever swaying from one extreme to the other but never collapsing owing to its center-fulcrum. This is the space that holds together every bit of life-force or emotions to help a person stand tall and firm, in the face of any adversity or calamity. When a person sets out from his familiar terrain into a professional space, one needs to present oneself as a more sorted, matured individual, perfectly in control of oneself. It is with such character traits, one gains the trusts of the superiors to take up more responsibilities. However, this does not happen easily for everybody as human beings, by nature are emotional beings. The slightest of provocation sometimes terrifies them and seemingly small tasks overwhelm. And then it takes like a long-drawn process of harassment, persecution and several other psychological shock therapies by the world to awaken one as an earthly living being.
Now, how do we expect this awakened earthly being to behave at the workplace?
Healthy, intelligent mind: The mind of such a person will be devoid of any illusion or wrong expectations. Hence, one would be very aware and know what to say and where. One would know when to approach the boss for the right questions about his growth in the organization.
Fairness & Justice: An emotionally intelligent person needs no advocate for oneself. One sees oneself through the truth and becomes a judge of fairness and justice. One would treat one’s employees or colleagues equally and would be capable enough to stand up for the right things.
Tolerance: Such a person would have great tolerance for opinions of others. A differing view would not hurt him personally or attack his ‘self-esteem.’ One would become more accepting and patient with others.
No biases: A small mind is always prone to building layers of biases. Whereas a broader, intelligent mind, with an expansive worldview would have the right perspective. One would be able to differentiate between right and wrong, easily.
War & Peace: When an enemy attacks, an emotionally intelligent person would stay calm and chalk out the clear strategy to win over enemies, under pressure. One never reacts to his enemy’s comments. One only responds.
The above-mentioned points are some of the boons of ‘emotional intelligence.’ The right kind of attitude can in fact lift an individual out of utter misery and suffering to a space of calm and peace. Only then we could usher in the spirit of growth, abundance and charity.
